A step forward for Indo-Bangla ties
  • The Tripura government has commenced the land acquisition process for the construction of India-Bangladesh Friendship Bridge over river Feni that demarcates boundaries between the two countries in south Tripura.

  • The process for acquiring land for a four-lane approach road and a connecting road on Indian side in southern Tripura has also begun.

  • Government of India is bearing the entire burden of expenditure towards the construction of the 150-metre bridge which will connect Sabroom of India and Ramgarh in Bangladesh.

  • Rehabilitation package is ready to compensate people who would be dislodged for construction purposes.

  • Land is required for the bridge, approach road and connecting road. Acquisition work started yesterday.

  • The bridge would facilitate implementation of a protocol India earlier signed with Bangladesh to use Chittagong sea port as a ‘port of call’. The port is 72 kilometre away from Sabroom.

  • India is also expanding rail network up to Sabroom to handle cargo consignments that would arrivefrom Chittagong port.

  • Ultimate connectivity plan is to benefit Tripura and other landlocked northeastern States with international and domestic shipments using the sea port.
